NFL sells Pro Bowl jerseys with a hefty $175 price tag

Jan 29, 2016 at 2:50 PM--


For some time now, fans have complained about the prices of Nike NFL merchandise since they took over as the official league outfitter from the already overpriced Reebok. Game jerseys, which are replica jerseys that feature screen printed names and numbers on them, have a recommended retail price of $99.99. Limited jerseys, which are of higher quality and feature stitched tackle twill name and numbers, have a recommended retail price of $149.99. Elite jerseys, which are similar to the ones worn by the players during games, have a recommended retail price of $294.99. At those prices, it's easy to see why cheaper knock-off jerseys are so popular.

If you were planning on picking up a NaVorro Bowman Pro Bowl jersey (No love for Joe Staley who does not have a jersey available) at these same prices, think again. Pro Bowl jerseys that feature screen printed names and numbers on them, the same style that runs $99.99 for team versions, will cost you a recommended retail price of $174.99. You read that correctly. That's $25 more than the higher quality Limited jerseys available.

You may love Bowman, but do you love him enough to pay those kinds of prices?

The annual AFC-NFC all-star game will take place on Sunday, January 31 at 4 PM Pacific. This will be Bowman's third Pro Bowl appearance (2012, 2013 and 2015 seasons).

The NFL announced today that the league is canceling the 2021 Pro Bowl game due to concerns surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic. It was scheduled to occur on January 31, 2021, at Allegiant Stadium — home of the Las Vegas Raiders. Las Vegas is being awarded the Pro Bowl in 2022. Pro Bowl honors and rosters will still be announced in December and continue to be based on the consensus votes from fans, players, and coaches, with each group's total votes counting as one-third of the selection process. The elimination of the Pro Bowl could allow the NFL to add a Week 18 to the schedule before the playoffs. That would help if NFL games continue to be postponed and rescheduled due to COVID-19. The league could eliminate the Pro Bowl week entirely without

Jason Verrett is finally healthy and putting in some dominating performances on the football field again. The injury-plagued cornerback has endured mostly challenging years since entering the NFL in 2014. It sounds like his hard work is finally paying off. Verrett has landed on injured reserve during all but one of his previous six NFL seasons. That one season in 2015 ended up landing the cornerback a Pro Bowl selection for his play that year. Verrett joined 95.7 The Game on Wednesday and was asked if he feels like he is finally back at that Pro Bowl level now that he is at his healthiest since that 2015 season. "Yeah, absolutely," Verrett responded on the Damon, Ratto & Kolsky show. "I just think, as the weeks go on, I think my game

Tankathon ranks each NFL team's remaining schedule based on difficulty. Right now, at the top of the list are the San Francisco 49ers, who own a strength of schedule (SOS) of .698. Much of that has to do with having two division opponents — the Seattle Seahawks and Los Angeles Rams — twice each on the remaining schedule. The Seahawks lead the NFC West at 5-0 while the Rams come in at 4-1. On Sunday night, San Francisco will face the Rams for the first time this year. The Green Bay Packers and Buffalo Bills are also listed among the 49ers' toughest remaining opponents, with the Washington Redskins and the Dallas Cowboys as the only two teams listed as the team's
